Wal-Mart also sell Optima batteries at a higher price than the Maxx battery.

I have one 6v Optima that is about 13 years old.

1954 3106 Carryall Suburban - part of the family for 48 years
1954 3104 5-window pickup w/Hydra-Matic - part of the family for 14 years
Z-series (54/55) GMC 350 (2-ton) COE - now part of Dave's family
- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

My vote, at least up until now, has been the Diehard. I haggle with the service dept and usually get a few dollars off and their warranty is longer than most. (I did put an Interstate battery in my coupe because the local Sears store closed.

......recently, for what its worth, Consumer Reports tested batteries, and told how they do it, and surprisingly Wal-Mart came out on top.

Problem is, what is good today cannot be counted on tomorrow. The bean counters are always looking for away to cut a few pennies of cost off of the millions or batteries, thus profiting thousands of dollars. The best advice is shop around and be informed. before laying out our hard earned dollars.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
